The previous post about my electric scooter was in Dutch, but this time I’ll write my update in English.
It has been some time ago since I made this picture, but it’s still valid. Due to the rain, snow and cold I haven’t been using the scooter that much, it’s at 1100km now.
After 1100km it’s still working fine, I had no malfunction or whatsoever, it just works!
I’ve been calculating how much energy I used. I know the battery is 1.8kWh and the specs say I should get some 70 ~ 100km on a charge, but let’s say it’s 50 (My record on one day is 67km).
For 1100km, I had to recharge 22 times. 22 times * 1.8kWh = 39.6kWh. Assuming the efficiency when charging is 85%, that brings the total amount of energy at 46.58kWh.
46kWh of energy! A liter of gasoline holds 10kWh, so I’ve used 4.6L of gasoline for 1100km. 1L:239KM, that is some efficiency!
The current price of a kWh is EUR 0.22, so these 1100km’s costed me only EUR 10.25!
Hopefully spring comes early this year, so I can start driving on my scooter again!
